.gov and americans losing their cheaper insurance plans despite president obama's thomas' approval ratings have hit an all-time low. 42% approve of his work. 51% disapprove and this is the first time in this paul more americans disapprove than approve. 22% said they had a positive view of the g.o.p., only 37% favor democrats. the democrats continue to defend obamacare and says he was not lying when he promised americans could keep their insurance if they liked it. president obama: anybody peddling the notion insurance is canceling the plan without mentioning all the insurers are encouraging people to join better plans with the same carrier and stronger benefits and stronger protections while others get better plans of new carriers through the marketplace, and that many will get new help to pay for the better plan and make them cheaper. if you leave that stuff out, you're being grossly misleading to say the least. rich: through analysis, the administration has knowledge to the health care law would lead the cancellation of these bare-bones cheaper plans despite the presidential promise. while some d

south, if obama care truly self-destructs, i don't know that it's certain, but i would say right now it is more than likely. i think it will set back american liberalism p for a decade at least. the reason is this. obama care is not just any piece of legislation. it's not like immigration. not like a tax hike. obama care is the core of the new expansion of the liberal idea. this is sort of the continuation of the new deal. the continuation of a great society. in a sense the way liberals portrayed it, it is the completion of the entitlement state. the one element that separated us from the rest of the advanced industrial countries saying we were the only one with people who were not covered. now we're going to enter into the realm of those who insure and protect everybody. if this collapses, this huge expansion of the entitlement state, this essential nationalization of one sixth of the u.s. economy, i think that discredits the entire enterprise of the expansion of government which is at the heart of obamaism. that's why liberals are running zar escared. not just one election. it's th
